Big Time Gaming (BTG), the leading online slot developer, has signed a deal with Blueprint Gaming where it will license its patented and trademarked MegaWays gaming feature. Blueprint Gaming, part of the Gauselmann Group, will use the MegaWays mechanic to design and develop its own proprietary games. More about MegaWays™ The highly popular MegaWays feature first appeared in BTG’s Dragon Born online slot a couple of years ago, and was last used in its most recent roll-out, Extra Chilli slot. Players are attracted to the MegaWays mechanic, a random reel modifier system which essentially allows any random spin to produce a different number of symbols on the reels. As such, players get to experience a different game on practically every spin, adding excitement and stimulation to their gaming sessions. The success of this feature can be seen in the popularity of Big Time Gaming titles such as White Rabbit slot, Bonanza slot and the new Extra Chilli slot. The Managing Director of Blueprint Gaming, Matt Cole commented on this one-of-a-kind licensing agreement, saying that BTG has enjoyed “phenomenal success” with its latest releases such as Extra Chilli slot and White Rabbit Slot. He said that a big part of this success is down to the “out and out innovations” that the company has developed in recent years. “We are thrilled to have gained access to MegaWays and can’t wait to begin incorporating it in the next wave of games release,” he said. Also commenting was the chief executive officer of Big Time Gaming, Nik Robinson. “This is a ground breaking partnership that stands testament to the highly innovative and unique mechanics we have developed here at Big Time Gaming.” Robinson also said that it would be interesting to see how Blueprint utilized their license, and BTG has already received a great deal of interest from other leading suppliers in the online gambling field who want to upgrade their offering with MegaWays. “MegaWays is a very successful mechanic and we believe it will eventually dwarf the standard 5 x 3 format of recent years,” said the BTG CEO. Robinson added that he was “delighted” to be able to share MegaWyas with the Gauselmann Group initially through Blueprint Gaming, and he believed that the partnership would lay the foundation for similar deals in the future.
